Hi Firefox We work in a government institution and we use Firefox because it is a unique, fast and safe program. We thank you for your efforts to develop the browser But we encountered a problem with the new update while printing the PDF files. It was showing us the option to print in portrait or landscape format, and when you updated version 14, this option no longer appeared. Where we deleted the new program, installed the older version, and stopped the update We trust you to solve the problem in the next update, and we ask you to give the matter importance

Steps to reproduce : - go to YouTube - open a video - press the full screen button or tilt the phone sideways to trigger full screen - Firefox crashes and forces back to home screen - if opening Firefox again only half of the video component shows as in portrait mode, rest is black screen - if attempting to go side/full screen does properly show the video, but going back again to normal screen still shows the half black screen

I can reproduce this with a almost 100% rate, it only fixes itself by restarting Firefox, where it will work until phone is put to sleep mode.

I tried reinstalling Firefox from scratch, as well as deleting my browser cache and it didn't fix.

When using the Export Logins feature to create a .csv file, the last few fields don't seem to translate into any known date-stamp format in Excel. The data seems to have relative chronological value, but I can't make sense of it in a spreadsheet.

Can a developer check this and modify the output of those fields so it's more compatible?

Example:

 Header             Cell data

Hi. So for quite a few months I've been experiencing two issues relating to the Firefox auto fill for login details.

Issue 1. When you visit a website sign in page the "Suggested logins" box pops up at the bottom (all normal). But then when you login the box won't go away. I can navigate to somewhere new in same tab or switch to another tab already open and the box won't disappear. To get rid of it I need to open a new tab and go to a new webpage, then I can go back to my already open tab.

Issue 2. The "Suggested logins" auto fill for sign in fields on a webpage won't work. This issue started around the same time as the first and is not on every website but a few including Google Account sign in which I use a lot. I will navigate to a sign in page, the Suggested logins box pops up, I select the login I want, but then it won't fill it in.

I've tried reinstalling the Firefox app, but it didn't work. I've kept using the app despite dealing with this everyday. They may be small bugs but they do get tedious after months of it daily. I was hoping an app update would fix the problem but no update has. So I thought I would share, see if its just me.

I am using Arlo security cameras which store the video captures as MP4 files. The Arlo app has video playback feature that works in Chrome or Edge but does not work in FireFox. From what I have been abe to glean from searches, Arlo uses HEVC Codec that FireFox either isn't compatible with or is lacking the codec. Any suggestions?

My 1Password extension (desktop app required) has stopped working in Firefox

Firefox 114.0, Windows 11 Home Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621 , 1Password-4.6.2.626 extension

Today, for reasons unknown, my 1Password extension, (an old and non-updatable version that I've used for many, many years), is non-responsive. The icon still resides in the Tool Bar, Windows ToolTips "sees" it as "1Password", but clicking on the icon has no effect. The extension is shown as Enabled in Firefox's Manage Your Extensions page.

I think I've tried all the "usual" things here: rebooted the computer, uninstalled and re-installed the extension and rebooting, checked the setting in 1Password itself to see that it's associated with "Mozilla Firefox 114.0", (the program still opens fine outside the browser).

This seems to be related to Firefox 114.0. On my other computer with the same Windows 11 version but using Firefox 113.0.1 had no problem with 1Password, but as soon as Firefox updated to 114.0 the same problem with 1Password appeared.

Anything that I might be able to do to get 1Password working?

See reddit post— no way I'm typing all that again! Reddit Post It's not that long, trust me— it's just that the code is long... I've attached a slightly different screenshot to the one I posted on the reddit post, but it makes no difference if you see one or the other, or both!

In summary, I've added a css code to my userChrome.css thingy to move the tabs below the search bar. I was also wondering what the best way to transfer my userChrome.css file + about:config settings over to a new version of Firefox. Due to not being admin of my laptop (I'm running it out of the .dmg file— besides, I always like to keep an older version of Firefox as a fallback), I have to install a whole new version of Firefox onto my laptop to update.

Thanks!

I just changed my Thunderbird to accommodate Microsoft Exchange (and had to enable the Owl add-on to do so). Now there is NO option available to set reply text at the top of a reply message. Replies are automatically set at the bottom after the first message in the string by default (which makes no sense and shouldn't have been the default). The option which used to be available in the Composition page of the Settings page is not there. How do I set reply text to appear at the top of a message as a standard??

Hello Mozilla Support Team,

Since one of the last updates firefox Download Setting seems not work properly...

Into Settings > Files and Applications > Downlods > Save files to option is ALWAYS on, even when "Aways ask you where to save files" option box is checked. When I open a PDF in view mode with Firefox, it automatically download it to the location described into "Save Files to"..in my case Desktop. It seems that the "Save Files to" option doesn't gray out when "Always ask..." option box is checked.

Do you have any idea why I can't chose just one of the two options?

Thanks for you help...

Alex

Hello!

Firefox for Android consistently closes whenever I try to play a video in full screen mode.

The steps to replicate this bug are as follows: I go to a website that has a video (like YouTube), I start playing a video, and then I click on the full screen button. Firefox then closes out to the main menu of the home. When I try to reenter the app, the Firefox app becomes a black screen with a horribly offset tiny corner showing a portion of the webpage.


I cannot find any crash reports in the "about Firefox" subsection of the settings

I am using The latest version of Android 13 And my version of Firefox is 114.2.0 (Build #2015957435). I have tried clearing the app cache, and reinstalling the app. Neither fixes it.

Please let me know if I can provide anything further!

Does anyone have any recommended fixes?

I have A LOT of problems with FF since the last couples of updates. It started around two months ago and after one of the updates (and FF has constant updates which is pretty annoying) the browser immediately starting getting really slow and buggy. The browser keeps crashing constantly, is slow, loading websites end in "network cannot be found" notices and you need to reload pages all the time to get them to load, videos play in the background by themselves on saved tabs without being activated or started.... The redesign of the menu some time back, btw, have gone to worse as it's now more difficult to find the active tab than before.

I've followed all instructions to try and resolve it and nothing works. I have no virus or downloads on the system so this is not the cause. Plugins activated or not activated makes no difference. Changing settings in FF to whatever suggested makes no difference, using about: to change settings makes no difference.

The browser has really turned almost unusable.

I had all kinds of problems with the forced changes to the Firefox screen in the prior update. (I have vision issues and I had everything working for me, then without any warning, I couldn't hardly even use Firefox.) After wasting a ton of time, I was able to get something working, but not as well. Now, there's a new update, and I don't want to install it unless there's a guarantee that it won't do unwanted changes, or at least give me the option to revert to my existing version if the new version doesn't work for me. Does anyone know if the problems caused in the last update have been fixed and what might be in the current update?
